Regretsy closes
I’ve now seen about a dozen really mournful posts on the loss of Regretsy. I kinda feel like people aren’t going to be this sad whenever Etsy itself actually goes out of business and closes up shop. Not that I expect that day to be any time soon or anything.

What Orson Scott Card’s Superman comic will be like
Man, I remember when I was a really big Orson Scott Card fan. Then I got to the book where the character that was so rigorously logical he was basically permanently ahedonic from his own intelligence put a global empire at risk because the enemy threatened a frozen embryo and he suddenly realized that unborn children should have the same rights and privileges as full grown adults. Then I kinda couldn’t stop seeing Card’s philosophical fingerprints on basically every irrational character decision anybody makes. If you’ve got the time track down his essay on how Bill Clinton is JUST LIKE one of his sociopathic characters who flays squirrels in his backyard because they both don’t really think of themselves as being super evil even though they obviously are. It’s a hoot. Point is this parody actually doesn’t go far enough.

Life has been discovered beneath the Antarctic ice
Of course it has. Now leave before it wakes up. I am serious, this is the one thing where I am weirdly freaked out every time I read about it because I feel like the incredibly slight chance there is actually an Elder God down there trumps the umpteenth weird isolated place on earth where microbial life has evolved in isolation for millions of years and learned to withstand total darkness and incredibly high pressure. Been there done that leave before you piss off Yog-Sothoth or something.

Parks and Recreation’s April Ludgate writes the best review of In the Aeroplane Over the Sea ever.
– – – – –
So Double Fine who did the multi-million dollar Kickstarter last year does this thing called Amnesia Fortnight where everybody in the company forgets the project they’re supposed to be working on and instead prototypes an entire game in two weeks. This year they opened up all the potential projects to Humble Bundle buyers to pick which ones they’d do and while that’s all interesting from a “Double Fine has figured out the transparent relationship with fans that Kickstarters demand way better than almost anybody else” standpoint what’s actually cool is that they did a 5 hour documentary series documenting the whole thing. I’m maybe the only person that wants to hear a guy talk for 8 minutes about using 2 synthesizers to make everything sound sorta like robots from Tron if Tron had robots but I’d take a chance on it since it’s just 10 bucks and you also get the five games for free.

Sketchfest has ended. Despite Cobb’s being kinda terrible and on the other side of town the Party Down show was pretty fun. Despite being 3 feet from our front door and at a theater I generally enjoy Army of Darkness with Bruce Campbell was…not. Also I played more Metal Gear Solid 3 until Patrick insisted I was playing it wrong and grabbed the controller so he could fiddle around in menu screens between insane cutscenes instead. Periodically he and Alex would tell me about all the amazing things the game allowed you to do though they were never actually able to do any of those things just to describe how cool it is later when you can actually do them. It is apparently the greatest game of all time.

An Alternate History of Doctor Who, in which the Doctor has always been played by women
So in addition to being just a really fun thought experiment I’m really impressed by how well the reverse gender casting is handled  They do a really good job of grabbing the right actresses for the right time period to be roughly equivalent but still interesting because you kinda wouldn’t think of the Doctor Who actors in that context.

Guys, I’m not going to lie to you, the nightlife show for sketchfest was a fucking disaster. We didn’t even get in the door there were so many people in line. We did manage to go to the JV Club podcast however with Tig Notaro and it was amazing. Like literally almost as good as Tig’s live set from Largo and I can’t wait to be able to link you guys the podcast once it’s actually up. When we came in a bald guy came in and I thought “that looks like Scott Adsit (AKA Pete Hornburger) but I can’t quite tell.” Then halfway into the show Tig asked if anybody was musical for a bit she was doing and suddenly the guy gets up and it sure enough is him and he sure enough does make fake harmonica noises for Tig and then they do 15 variations on the pretending to kiss joke. That was the 4th most amazing part of the show. It wasn’t the funniest thing I saw at sketchfest but it was absolutely the most interesting.
